Glenn Ivey, the former Prince George’s County state’s attorney (what they call a DA back in Maryland), is challenging progressive Congresswoman Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary. To make a long story short, the local Maryland political machine, K Street interests, and a group of pro-Likud donors never liked Edwards. She has a pesky problem of always voting on principle. So they encouraged Ivey, a former corporate lobbyist, veteran Capitol Hill staffer and current attorney at the lobbying firm Venable, to challenge her after they redrew her district (for more on Ivey, check out DailyKos diarist brooklynbadboy’s post).
Taking a peek at Ivey’s campaign, which was launched only a few weeks ago, he seems to have messed up already. The Federal Elections Commission recently mailed the Ivey campaign a letter complaining that the candidate failed to submit basic information in his application to file a campaign committee. According to the letter, he didn’t even bother to disclose which office he is running for. View it below:
